SEWANEE, Tenn. - Junior guard Sue Kim was selected as the Tiger of the Week following her performance on the hardwood last week for the Sewanee women's basketball program.
Against Wesleyan (Ga.) on Jan. 2, Kim became the sixth women's basketball player in NCAA Division III to record a triple-double in 2018. In the 81-55 victory over the Wolves, she scored 12 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and dished out 10 assists. She also added six steals.
Kim joins Courtney Lofnik of Concordia Chicago (Ill.) and Ciara McKissick of Becker (Mass.) who each recorded a triple-double on the same day. Going into this week, there have been 12 student-athletes who earned the feat.
Stepping back into conference play against Millsaps on Jan. 5, the Knoxville, Tenn. native scored six points and made three assists.
In the overtime contest with Birmingham-Southern, Kim scored 12 points thanks to three 3-pointers, collected six dimes and corralled five boards.
On the week, Kim totaled 19 assists in three games and scored 30 total points.
In 2018, Kim leads the Southern Athletic Association in assists per game (4.4), totaling 53 assists.
Kim and the rest of the Tigers return to the court Tuesday, beginning a five-game road swing. Sewanee will travel to Welch (Tenn.) to conclude its non-conference schedule at 5 p.m. before stepping back into conference play this weekend, with Oglethorpe and Berry.
